    Hizbullah continues to arm because there is no guarantee that under one pretext or another, and there have been many of those going all the way back to before Hizballah was a glint in Nasrallah's eyes, that Israel does not go back for the water or bully Lebanon as it threatens to do every day.The Lebanese army is not well equipped to fight the Israeli army but Hezballh is, can and does. Also, the process of creating Israel resulted in a large number of Palestinians in Lebanon, a factor that is highly destabilising for Lebanon.Why should Lebanon suffer the consequences whilst Israelis enjoy the land they effectively stole (UN and the world agreement notwithstanding)to accomodate the victims of another tragedy perpetrated in Europe.I think many lebanese find more of cultural affinity with Israel than with other Arabs but experience has shown them not to trust the Israelis, so at best those with a friendly disposition to Israelis, will be neutral.
